Ah, you mean this thing.
https://www.motorcyclenews.com/news/new-bikes/2018/norton-scrambler-650/

I was somewhat taken aback that they called a 650cc an 'Atlas', doesn't seem right somehow. ?
Looks ummm, modern, sorta, similar school of styling as the Enfield Himalayan perhaps ??

Don't like the looks of this bike at all,in fact i think it's UGLY.
This said, I have rarely seen a good looking liquid cooled motorbike.
With Euro legislation there is unfortunately little or no future for new air cooled motorbikes, with thanks to the eurocrats in Brussels. (NOT)

Think of all the road dirt and water being sent straight into the gap between the Rad and the Belly pan.

Looks like a BSA to me. (bits stuck anywhere)
However, I would like a ride on one. Looks like fun.

Cheers,
Bill

Not a 650cc, thats for sure - thats the pic for their V4, 1200cc Aprilia copy !!
Can even see the rear heads of the V4...

Maybe this is what you should have shown ?

"Not road legal"

There does seem to be a family resemblance there though,
could it be that they have just bolted a 650cc engine into the 1200cc chassis ??
Naa, they wouldn't do that, surely......

The Aprilia 2019 V4 is increased out to 1100cc from previous 1000cc, there is also a version with just the front 2 cylinders at 660cc.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQLDTFFXKuc

Norton V4 is 1200cc, the superlight is the 650cc version with 2 front cylinders from the V4.

Who is copying who ?
